In honor of Pope Francis’ visit to the United States later this month, I decided to make a packet like the normal Saints Printables Packets, but with a Pope Francis theme! This Pope Francis printables and worksheets packet is a 28-page packet and features all of the same types of pages that you’ve come to love as part of the Saints Printables Packets, but this time themed around Pope Francis.
The appropriate ages for this packet varies from preschool through elementary school. I don’t want to assign a specific age group to these kinds of things because there is such a variation among children and their abilities. In addition to this, some older children still enjoy activities like coloring pages. Some activities are preschool appropriate, while others might go as high as mid to late elementary school. In some cases, there are different levels of the same activity.
As always, it’s time to give a shout out to my awesome husband, Eric. Without him, these types of packets just wouldn’t be possible, since he’s the one that draws the graphics for me. This one, in particular, gets a special thanks to him, because it’s the one I gave him the least heads up on. The idea came to me during Saturday night Mass this past weekend, and I made our kids poke him to get his attention and then I whispered down the pew, “I need you to draw Pope Francis for me SOON.” He drew him that night. Thanks, baby.
Because of this Pope Francis drawing was made specifically for my use in this packet, this is not clip art for public use. That would not only be against copyright law, but it just wouldn’t be nice. Thanks, Eric, for being Johnny-on-the-spot for me. You’re a peach.
